As Dan Callahan, Chairman of the Edcamp Foundation board recently pointed out, edcamps continue to grow across the nation and around the world. Consider these statistics:
In May, 2010, the first edcamp was held in Phildelphia.
A year later – May, 2011 – 21 edcamps had been held.
Based on current known & planned events, by May of 2012, we estimate the total number of edcamps will be 92 – including at least four in Sweden alone (just this past month).
Edcamps: promoting organic, participant-driven professional development for K-12 educators worldwide.
From a single event to almost 100 just like it (worldwide) in just two years.
Go, Edcamp, GO!
